Update 4: Finding time to write is hard

Jochem Gerritsen @jochemg

Here's my weekly update.

1) What did I work on last week?

✅ Considered how to best use the time I have in any given week. This is difficult, because writing costs a lot of time but it doesn't lead to a lot (of revenue or subscribers).

❌ As such, I didn't get to write my new book review

❌ Got just 3 more subscribers (instead of the 11 I wanted), grew to 165.

2) What am I working on this week, and what are my goals?

  • Finish a new book review for the blog.

  • Grow to 175 readers.
